CALLING ALL PREGNANT MUMS AND THEIR FRIENDS

TWIN A PREGNANCY TODAY

A whole new person is about to be born into the world, along with all the joys and fears that come along with pregnancy and having a baby. It's exciting isn't it?

Yet for some women, living in places where childbirth is dangerous, there are more fears than anyone should have to face alone.

That’s why through Pregnancy Twinning we face them together.

A woman is 70 times more likely to die during pregnancy and childbirth in Malawi than in the UK.

Yet most of the time these deaths are preventable.

HOW DOES PREGNANCY TWINNING WORK?

We use your one-off sponsorship of £42 to fund our maternal health programme in Malawi, it covers the costs helping one mum access the care she need for a safe pregnancy and delivery.

I'M PREGNANT. TWIN ME!
Congratulations! Go for this option if you want to share your own pregnancy journey with a family across the world.

WHAT OUR TWINNED MUMS ARE SAYING

Since I was supported I have also supported two HIV+ pregnant women in my village – I have shared with them what I was taught. Today if you visit these two women you will see that they have good health and their children were born HIV negative all because of the Pregnancy Twinning intervention.

Mariam

Southern Malawi

My baby was born HIV negative. My husband and I did not know that this was possible, or that an HIV positive mother can breastfeed. This programme needs to continue so that it can reach other pregnant women in this village. Our elders are happy that we are visiting the hospital and that we are being visited here at home.

Janet

Northern Malawi

My husband was also given advice about preparing for delivery, he was able to support me through pregnancy which even benefitted my neighbours! Men in this village who do not support their pregnant wives so my husband was a good role model because of what he learnt.
